Photographer Magdalena Bagrianow had spent months in India capturing portraits of its people showcasing just how unique and beautiful they are. The portraits are very powerful, bursting with emotions in each frame. While exploring South Asia, the photographer was learning more and more about traditions and local people. She uses Canon 5D and plays with usual surroundings and colors to make an impact on viewers even greater. “After some time it became apparent to me that what I want is to photograph people up close and personal,” Magdalena said. “I immediately fell in love with this vibrant, alive country and its beautiful people. It is by looking into the person’s eyes that we get the feeling of their character, their emotions…it allows us to connect with them and get a glimpse of who they really are. We often hear that the eyes are the window to the soul and in my view definitely the key to portrait photography.” It was 15 years ago when Magdalena first started doing photography. Now she has become an inspiration to others as her art speaks real human values that get appreciation deservingly.
